Key Features of the New Age XUV500 Automatic
• Fully Automatic Gearbox -
The XUV500 Automatic features a new 2nd generation transmission with torque
convertor and a planetary gear-train that enables smooth and precise gear
shifts. The intuitive gear changes combine responsiveness of a manual transmission
with the hassle-free operation of an automatic, thereby providing the
experience of both relaxed cruise or spirited drive, as desired. The Automatic
transmission allows dynamic gear shifts that are smooth and barely perceptible.
• Optimised gear ratios (with
2 overdrive gears) with 6 speed automatic transmission for better fuel
efficiency - With 6 gears the XUV500 has a higher number of gear ratios than a
conventional 5 speed automatic which are optimized to deliver the best fuel

AWD - For the Adventure seekers the all new Automatic transmission also comes
with an option of All Wheel Drive (AWD) on the XUV500 W10 variant. The AWD

difference in RPM between the front and rear wheels.
• Intelligent adaptation to
terrains and altitudes - The intelligent all new transmission is capable of
adapting to mid and high altitudes to enable best drivability in these
conditions. The two uphill climbing modes allow the vehicle to take on slopes
and ghats effortlessly.
• Easy cruising in City - The
automatic gearbox is capable of providing brisk acceleration and smooth
delivery of torque across all 6 gears so as to enable a relaxed and stress free
drive even in the “stop and go” city traffic.
It comes with a “creep function” to aid in slow moving traffic.
• Manual Mode - The Manual
mode is for those spirited drives as it allows the user to manually shift gears
and extract the best performance from the vehicle.
• Minimum Service - In the
XUV500 Automatic Transmission the fluid is filled for life, ensuring service
cost is kept to a minimum
